We are proud to present our newest cooperation, where sustainability is the keyword.
Together with the international environmental organization “Trees for the Future”, we are now giving back to the nature what we consume when having fun, we call it Sustainable Longboarding.
At vulnerable areas around the world, Jibe Longboards together with the organization will plant 3-4 trees everytime we sell a longboard. By doing so we can not only promote a culture/sport we find highly sustainable – now we can make a different directly in our sales.

A crew of young longboard enthusiasts’ contacted us some month ago regarding a trip they had in mind. A trip on longboard that had never taken place before in danish history. We found their project/challenge COOL as F***, and decided to support and sponsor them.
The crew existed of 10 guys from all over the country called themselves “Longtrek Denmark”. They met each other on a sport college from where their longboard interest and friendship started. These guys were determined to travel all around Denmark on their longboards. SERIOUS!, we thought…
If this challenge would be done, they would write history. If they completed this challenge on Jibe Longboards, it would be SICK we thought. So we supplied the guys with longboards, hardware and other articles which could make their trip better and more SHRED’ish!
We are stocked that the team “LongTrek Denmark” completed the mission. And we are stocked to be a part of their adventure!
This is their story: Longtrek Denmark – 1500km in 26 days
Our dream is to run a longboard company we find inspiring to our selves and more important, to others.
We believe that our longboard business is healthy and has a great future. The satisfaction involved in running Jibe Longboards is primarily delivered by happy customers. It’s like a drug – we can’t get enough!
After two year of success in our home country Denmark, we believe it’s time for Jibe Longboards to cross the bo(a)rder. We are still The danish Longboard Brand and with same business model as always:
“Delivering quality longboards for attractive prices”
… we’re going to enter foreign markets, because we believe in our selves, our values and in our products!
Among the changes in our company, is that we speak English.
